... choice but to skip out! It's not like we didn't try a few times to pay. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and for the next 3 hours we learned all about the Catterdrale, Libereria Piccolomini, the Pailo - the bareback horse race which was going to be run in a weeks time and the 17 contrada of the city who are vying for the horse race - a kind of state of origin type rivalry. The Palio, at Piazza del Campo only 10 contrade compete in each race and it is not a touristic event, and ...

... fort of supposedly the best wine of Tuscany - Brunella. We tasted wines ranging from 32 to 120 Euro and settled on several choices to have shipped home for free! We will share a case between us. The ride home was winding and nauseating for me - car sickness gets me on a mountain road. But we stopped in Radda for a great dinner and now are ...
